All files that match the given group id or user id will be changed to the new specified id. Numeric and symbolic ids are recognised. =head1 OPTIONS =over 5 =item B<-g> B<--group> B<--gid> Group. Specifiy the existing group id (gid) to match. The id may eithe +r be numeric, or symbolic. In the latter case, it is an error to specify a non-exist +ant group name. This switch and the [B<-u>] switch are mutually exclusive. =item B<-u> B<--uid> B<--user> User. Specifiy the existing user id (uid) to match. The id may either +be numeric, or symbolic. In the latter case, it is an error to specify a non-exist +ant user name. This switch and the [B<-g>] switch are mutually exclusive. =item B<-n> B<--new> New. Specify the new id that will be applied to the files that are own +ed by the group or user specified via the B<-g> or B<-u> switches. =item B<-r> B<-R> B<--recurse> Recurse. All subdirectories of the directories specified on the comman +d line will be examined. =item B<-q> B<--quiet> Quiet. By default, the script will print out every change made as well + as errors resulting from the inability to perform the change. This switch will c +ause the script to run silently. =item B<-v> B<--verbose> Verbose. The script will print out a little more information than usua +l, notably the name of each directory root given when performing a recursive search, +and the resolved numeric id when a symbolic group or user is given. =item B<-V> B<--version> Version. Print out the current version of the script and exit with per +forming any changes. =back If no file specifications are given on the command line, one of two ac +tions will be taken. If recursion is specified then the current directory `.' wil +l be used as a starting point. If recursion is not specified, the current direct +ory is globbed and all entries are processed. The script must be run by the superuser, and will exit immediately if +this condition is not met. =head1 EXAMPLES C<nugid -u 1245 -n operator -rq /> Starting from the root directory, find all files who are owned by user + 1245 (which may be an account that has been deleted from the host) and chan +ge the ownership to that of the `operator' account. Nothing will be printed. C<nugid -g staff -n wheel> Change the files in the current directory that are owned by the group +`staff' to the group `wheel'. The output will look something like: chown 410, 5->15, ./porpentine chown 203, 5->15, ./slothrop chown 600, 5->15, ./stencil There may be many more files than these three in the current directory +, however, these would be the only ones belonging to the group `staff'. In this e +xample, the numeric id of the staff group is 5, and the id of the `wheel' grou +p is 15. C<nugid -g 45 -n 85 -r> Change all files owned by group 45 to group 85. Note that neither of t +hese ids necessarily equate to a known group name (as per C</etc/groups> or equ +ivalent). This may have dire consequences on the health of your host, use with c +aution. =head1 INSTALLATION As this this script is useable only by the superuser, it makes sense t +o install it with no permissions for anyone other than root. The following comma +nds are thus suitable for installing the script: cp thisfile /usr/local/bin/nugid chown root /usr/local/bin/nugid chmod 700 /usr/local/bin/nugid =head1 COPYRIGHT Copyright (c) 2001 David Landgren.
